Can't believe I'm in my fifth month already! We get to see the baby and find out it's gender on Thursday and I will be exactly half-way through my pregnancy. It's been a long time coming - maybe after that ultrasound it'll seem more real!

Lost a pound this week (woo-hoo!); apparently this is the time of the month when I lose weight. I'm glad I've been journaling my weight and inches with monthly commentary because it became very clear after looking at three months of records that... Read more
I finally got a catch-up-on-sleep day today and when I weighed myself at noon, I was back down to 158.5! We'll see how it goes next week, but it was definitely encouraging after the big workouts I've done this week and how careful I've been wit... Read more
I burned so many calories yesterday, and got so little sleep, that I was SUPER hungry and ended up eating some extra healthy snacks. I was sure that I had used up my lovely calorie deficit for the day, but I didn't! I was actually still within m... Read more
I'm moving a little slow this morning, but given the late night, that's understandable! Still, it's not like I can just sit here all day and do my pilates and jog whenever I feel like it. Eventually, I need to go to work! But I thought a little ... Read more
So my weight took an amazing 2 pound drop last week and came back up 1.5 pounds this week, putting me on track to lose 1 pound this month. I would like to be upset about the idea of only losing 1 pound this month (and believe me, I will try to g... Read more
What a huge relief to see the scale moving again! I dropped two pounds this week making my average weight loss for the last six weeks 1.1 pounds lost per week. HURRAY!
So glad I made those little changes this week in my diet, my attitude an... Read more
... and I'm actually looking forward to it. I went ahead and weighed myself the last couple of days and the scale has been, well, I won't tell because it wasn't the official weigh in, but it's looking good for tomorrow's weigh in! Only problem i... Read more
Weight was down ... half a pound. *sigh* I want to make the scale move! But I'm switching to counting nutrients and trying to get them in as efficiently as possible while I navigate the cravings and low energy of pms.
I am now counting ONLY... Read more
Oops, I forgot to blog my Saturday weigh-in! The weekend got busy... ok, here goes:
1. Weight: 161 - again!! I guess that's good, right, that I'm maintaining my lowest weight of the past couple years?!? Definitely looking for 160 this comin... Read more
Yesterday got me back on track, mentally speaking. I ate my meals as planned, but when I was still hungry 30 minutes after, I ate a little more of healthy, satisfying foods. I also made some delicious pumpkin muffins from spice cake mix and cann... Read more
I have that funny tired-but-not-tired feeling. I'm pretty sure exercise will help, I'm just having trouble getting going. I know that anything is better than nothing, but I'm watching the scale go up every single day because I'm doing less. At l... Read more
I've been working VERY hard to lose at least ONE pound this week, despite some major fatigue/menstrual issues, but the scale still said 161 this morning. What made it just a little more frustrating was that I've been checking my weight every day... Read more
Feeling a little draggy this week, so I'm getting more of my deficit from my diet than from my exercise, but last week was amazing! I burned at least 500 calories in my workouts every day and I can't wait to push that to the next level. For now,... Read more
